This Grade II Listed property was formerly a pair of cottages dating from the late 18th/early 19th century. It has been in the same ownership for many years and while perfectly habitable, now awaits some updating. The wisteria clad front facade makes it one of the more photographed properties in Malmesbury (see last photo). Period features include sash windows and a number of exposed ceiling beams.
The half glazed front door leads into a dining area with a tiled floor and timber clad ceiling. The dining area leads through to the kitchen at the rear which has a range of base cupboards including a double drainer sink. An opening off the dining area leads to the sitting room, which has an open fireplace on a raised hearth with log storage beneath. There are two windows to the front and several shelved recesses. Leading off is the utility area with the Alpha gas combination boiler, plumbing for a washing machine and a useful shelved cupboard. There is a glazed external door and a cloakroom off. Stone steps and stairs lead to a garden room which could equally provide a fourth bedroom if required. It is dual aspect including French doors into the garden. There are three bedrooms and a shower room.
At the rear is a garden store with a path and steps leading up to the well stocked garden containing a host of shrubs and plants designed to provide colour throughout the year. Adjoining the garden room is a brick paved patio and a large octagonal summerhouse, which was previously used as an observatory.
All mains connected. The gas boiler supplies central heating and hot water. Council Tax band E - £2,798.46 payable for 2023/24. There is no EPC as the cottage is Listed.
